KThompson12's Journal, 12 June 2013

I was ready for 190 this morning. Seems like every morning I say "OK, starting today I'm back on my diet!", but by dinner I raid the fridge & pantry. Last night, while cooking dinner, I ate so much junk that I was full - but still ate my whole dinner anyway. Then laid on the couch and watched a 3 hour movie.
This morning I got a little motivation by seeing only 185.2 rather than 190. I rode the bike for 20 minutes, as I realized that there's no rush into going 1+ hours with intervals, or running at the gym, I need to train myself to get back up there and it all starts with small doses. I can absolutely do 20 minutes on the bike every morning, or walk Amy, or go to the gym for treadmill or eliptical.
Snacking and eating during the day should help with my dinnertime madness, I'll try to incorporate more snacks during the day.
185.2 lb Lost so far: 4.8 lb.    Still to go: 5.2 lb.    Diet followed poorly.

Sounds like a great plan. Work up to it. If you hit the ground running full bore, it’s only an invitation to injury or burn-out. When you finish a workout you should feel tired, but pumped and ready to do more. After a short rest of course. Healthy snacks are great, but another option is to divide your meals to smaller portions and eat more frequently (i.e. 5-6 small meals instead of 3 big ones). Usually, the hard part of this plan is finding the time to fit this into your schedule, but it may help curb the snack attacks. I wish you the best of luck.
